Elders: Fashion models

“They are naturals in front of the camera. Ms. Hsu, 84, exudes the haughtiness of a supermodel but retains an air of playfulness. Mr. Chang, 83, is the perfect foil, complementing his wife’s swagger with a chill disposition while rocking bountiful eyebrows.”

From the New York Times (paywall after a few issues a month), an article about a Taiwanese couple has an Instagram following of ~800,000 at the time I’m writing this. The pair have swagger as they model lost and abandoned laundry left at their laundromat.

I recommend the NYT article as it explores a bit of their bio. The world is sometimes an adorable place. Check out their Instagram.

Identity: Photography without a face

Ben Zank is a NYC-based photographer who captures mostly-faceless subjects buried, disappearing, laying surreal in isolated nature. I hoped the artist had a shop with prints, but no such luck that I’ve found.

About the facelessness, Zank says, “Some people are really good at getting a certain emotion of people when photographing them. I’ve found that I can create the same effect without showing someone’s face. The image itself is the emotion. I have nothing against showing my face, I’ve done it before. I just don’t want it to take away from the important bit. I’ve got a pretty distracting face, you know.
